Seeking Land to Lease Near Eugene

Land Seeker Description

Hello! My small family (myself, husband, and 3 yr old daughter) would like to lease land near Eugene.

We currently have a small homestead and we’d like access to more land. We make soap and we’d like to grow herbs and botanicals to use in our soap. We are amateur farmers and still have much to learn, but our goal is to adopt permaculture practices on the land and grow a variety of fruits, veggies, herbs, and flowers. We would also raise chickens, bees, and potentially other animals for complete symbiosis on the farm. We have studied the methods of Eliot Coleman and Jean-Martin Fortier and will be implementing their techniques on any land we lease!

We would like enough space to have a garden and chickens. If there’s enough space for other animals, that would be a bonus, but not a requirement.

My husband built the cottage we live in almost from scratch! He has experience with house building, electrical, plumbing, general manual labor.

We are passionate about living an environmentally-friendly lifestyle and we are hard-working people. We would like to find land as soon as possible.


What features of the property are essential?

Access to water is necessary. If there are no structures on the property, we would need permission to build them (to house tools and animals).
